I know that when I was pregnant with my first, Ashton who's now almost 4, everyone judged me. I was only 19 when I conceived him and had him the day after I turned 20. Ever since the day I found out I was pg, ppl have been very judgemental and full of unwanted advice. I look even younger than I am so ppl really thought I was too young to have a child and they would voice that openly. It felt like everything I did was looked over and judged upon, and everyone felt like I needed their advice. Of course, I fought it and felt like I didn't need ANYONES advice... not even my mothers. They don't seem to judge anymore bc I'm now 23 and have a 2nd child and my first is really turning out great so I guess they know I know what I'm doing.
Did anyone else go thro this? Or are you going thro it right now?
I definately got the same thing when i got pregnant with Hailee... mostly cause my ex bf was a harsh jerk, but I ended up leaving him when she was jus about 2 , and raised her on my own I got pregnant when i just turned 17.. it was a lot of strangers with the opinions too.
I got it with Dillan alot when I got pregnant with him 2 weeks after I turned 20 and am still getting it today. I to look way younger then 23 and am now pregnant with my 3rd. I get alot of nasty comments a looks when they see me with 2 young children and pregnant again....I wish people would just keep thier comments and rude looks to them selves.

I get it now.. Being that I'm the youngest mother in BOTH of my childrens classes, one mom ALWAYS makes digs about my age (how i'm young and can get away with having wild colors in my hair) - i have pink/black hair (well pink highlights) lol.. she always makes little digs ect.. its kind of rude
